  • Implementing MPLS Transport Profile

    This module describes how to implement MPLS transport profile (MPLS-TP) on the router. MPLS-TPsupported by IETF enables the migration of transport networks to a packet-based network that efficientlyscale to support packet services in a simple and cost-effective way.MPLS-TP combines the necessary existingcapabilities of MPLS with additional minimal mechanisms in order that it can be used in a transport role.

    MPLS transport profile enables you to create tunnels that provide the transport network service layer overwhich IP and MPLS traffic traverse.

    Information About Implementing MPLS Transport ProfileTo implement MPLS-TP, you should understand these concepts:

    MPLS Transport ProfileMPLS Transport Profile (TP) enables you to create tunnels that provide the transport network service layerover which IP and MPLS traffic traverse. MPLS-TP tunnels enable a transition from Synchronous OpticalNetworking (SONET) and Synchronous Digital Hierarchy (SDH) time-division multiplexing (TDM)technologies to packet switching, to support services with high bandwidth utilization and low cost. Transportnetworks are connection oriented, statically provisioned, and have long-lived connections. Transport networksusually avoid control protocols that change identifiers like labels. MPLS-TP tunnels provide this functionalitythrough statically provisioned bidirectional label switched paths (LSPs). This figure shows the MPLS-TPtunnel:

    Figure 1: MPLS Transport Profile Tunnel

    MPLS-TP combines the necessary existing capabilities of MPLS with additional minimal mechanisms inorder that it can be used in a transport role. You can set upMPLS-TP through a CLI or a network managementsystem.

    MPLS-TP tunnels have these characteristics:

    • An MPLS-TP tunnel can be associated with working LSP, protect LSP, or both LSP

    • Statically provisioned bidirectional MPLS-TP label switched paths (LSPs)

    • Symmetric or asymmetric bandwidth reservation

    • 1:1 path protection with revertive mode for MPLS-TP LSP with revertive mode for MPLS-TP LSP

    • Use of Generic Alert Label (GAL) and Generic Associated Channel Header (G-ACH) to transport controlpackets; for example, BFD packets and pseudowire OAM packets

    • BFD is used as a continuity check (CC) mechanism over MPLS-TP LSP

    Implementing MPLS Transport ProfileInformation About Implementing MPLS Transport Profile

  • • Remote Defect Indication (RDI) based on BFD

    • Fault OAM functions

    These services are supported over MPLS-TP tunnels:

    • Dynamic spoke pseudowire (for H-VPLS) over static MPLS-TP tunnels.

    • Static spoke pseudowire (for H-VPLS) over static MPLS-TP tunnels.

    • MS-PW services where static and dynamic pseudowire segments can be concatenated.

    • MPLS ping and traceroute over MPLS TP LSP and PW.

    • Static routes over MPLS-TP tunnels.

    • Pseudowire redundancy for static pseudowire.

    • VPWS using static or dynamic pseudowire pinned down to MPLS-TP tunnels.

    • VPLS and H-VPLS using static or dynamic pseudowire pinned down to MPLS-TP tunnels.

    Bidirectional LSPsMPLS transport profile (MPLS-TP) LSPs are bidirectional and congruent where LSPs traverse the same pathin both directions. AnMPLS-TP tunnel can be associatedwith either workingMPLS-TP LSP, protectMPLS-TPLSP, or both. The working LSP is the primary LSP backed up by the protect LSP. When a working LSP goesdown, protect LSP is automatically activated. In order for an MPLS-TP tunnel to be operationally up, it mustbe configured with at least one LSP.

    MPLS-TP Path ProtectionPath protection provides an end-to-end failure recovery mechanism (that is, full path protection) for MPLS-TPtunnels. MPLS-TP LSPs support 1:1 path protection. You can configure the working and protect LSPs as partof configuring the MPLS-TP tunnel. The working LSP is the primary LSP used to route traffic, while theprotect LSP is a backup for a working LSP. If the working LSP fails, traffic is switched to the protect LSPuntil the working LSP is restored, at which time traffic forwarding reverts back to the working LSP (revertivemode).

    Fault OAM SupportThe fault OAM protocols and messages support the provisioning and maintenance of MPLS-TP tunnels andbidirectional LSPs:

    Cisco ASR 9000 Series Aggregation Services Router MPLS Configuration Guide, Release 4.2.x 3

    Implementing MPLS Transport ProfileBidirectional LSPs

  • • Generic Associated Channel

    Generic Associated Channel (G-ACh) is the control channel mechanism associated with MPLSLSPs in addition to MPLS pseudowire. The G-ACh Label (GAL) (Label 13) is a generic alertlabel to identify the presence of the G-ACh in the label packet. It is taken from the reservedMPLSlabel space.

    G-ACh or GAL is used to support in-band OAMs ofMPLS-TP LSPs and pseudowires. The OAMmessages are used for fault management, connection verification, continuity check and otherfunctions.

    These messages are forwarded along the specified MPLS LSP:

    • OAMFault Management: Alarm Indication Signal (AIS), Link Down Indication (LDI), andLock Report (LKR) messages (GAL with fault-OAM channel)

    • OAM Connection Verification: Ping and traceroute messages (GAL with IP channel)

    • BFD messages (GAL with BFD channel)

    These messages are forwarded along the specified pseudowire:

    • Static pseudowire OAM messages (static pseudowire status)

    • Pseudowire ping and traceroute messages

    • Fault Management: Alarm Indication Signal (AIS), Link Down Indication (LDI), and LockReport (LKR) messages

    LDI messages are generated at midpoint nodes when a failure is detected. The midpoint sendsthe LDI message to the endpoint that is reachable with the existing failure. The midpoint nodealso sends LKR messages to the reachable endpoint, when an interface is administratively down.AIS messages are not generated by Cisco platforms, but are processed if received. By default, thereception of LDI and LKR on the active LSP at an endpoint will cause a path protection switchover,while AIS will not.

    • Fault Management: Emulated Protection Switching for LSP Lockout

    You can implement a form of Emulated Protection Switching in support of LSP Lockout usingcustomized fault messages. When a Cisco Lockout message is sent, it does not cause the LSP tobe administratively down. The Cisco Lockout message causes a path protection switchover andprevents data traffic from using the LSP. The LSP's data path remains up so that BFD and otherOAM messages can continue to traverse it. Maintenance of the LSP can take place such asreconfiguring or replacing a midpoint LSR. BFD state over LSP must be up and MPLS ping andtraceroute can be used to verify the LSP connectivity, before the LSP is put back into service byremoving the lockout. You cannot lockout working and protect LSPs simultaneously.

    • LSP ping and traceroute

    For MPLS-TP connectivity verification, you can use ping mpls traffic-eng tunnel-tp andtraceroute mpls traffic-eng tunnel-tp commands. You can specify that the echo requests be sentalong the working LSP or the protect LSP. You can also specify that the echo request be sent ona locked out MPLS-TP tunnel LSP (either working or protect) if the working or protect LSP isexplicitly specified.

  • • Continuity Check through BFD

    BFD session is automatically created onMPLS-TP LSPs with default parameters. You can overridethe default BFD parameters either through global commands or per-tunnel commands. Furthermore,you can optionally specify different BFD parameters for standby LSPs. For example, when anLSP is in standby, BFD hello messages can be sent at smaller frequency to reduce line-card CPUusage. However, when a standby LSP becomes active (for example, due to protection switching),nominal BFD parameters are used for that LSPs (for example, to run BFD hello messages at higherfrequency). For more information about BFD, see the Configuring Bidirectional ForwardingDetection on the Cisco ASR 9000 Series Router in the Cisco ASR 9000 Series AggregationServices Router Interface and Hardware Component Configuration Guide.

    MPLS-TP Links and Physical InterfacesMPLS-TP link IDs may be assigned to physical interfaces only. Bundled interfaces and virtual interfaces arenot supported for MPLS-TP link IDs.

    The MPLS-TP link is used to create a level of indirection between the MPLS-TP tunnel and midpoint LSPconfiguration and the physical interface. The MPLS-TP link-id command is used to associate an MPLS-TPlink ID with a physical interface and next-hop node address.

    Multiple tunnels and LSPs may then refer to the MPLS-TP link to indicate they are traversing that interface.You canmove theMPLS-TP link from one interface to another without reconfiguring all theMPLS-TP tunnelsand LSPs that refer to the link.

    Link IDs must be unique on the router or node. For more information, see the Configuring MPLS-TP Linksand Physical Interfaces section.

    Tunnel LSPsTunnel LSPs, whether endpoint or midpoint, use the same identifying information. However, it is entereddifferently.

    • A midpoint consists of a forward LSP and a reverse LSP. A MPLS-TP LSP mid point is identified byits name, and forward LSP, reverse LSP, or both are configured under a submode.

    • At the midpoint, determining which end is source and which is destination is arbitrary. That is, if youare configuring a tunnel between your router and a coworker's router, then your router is the source.However, your coworker considers his or her router to be the source. At the midpoint, either router couldbe considered the source. At the midpoint, the forward direction is from source to destination, and thereverse direction is from destination to source. For more information, see the Configuring MPLS-TPLSPs at Midpoints section.

    • At themidpoint, the LSP number does not assume default values, and hencemust be explicitly configured.

    • At the endpoint, the local information (source) either comes from the global node ID and global ID, orfrom locally configured information using the source command after you enter the interface tunnel-tpnumber command, where number is the local or source tunnel-number.

    • At the endpoint, the remote information (destination) is configured using the destination command afteryou enter the interface tunnel-tp number command. The destination command includes the destination

  • node ID, optionally the global ID, and optionally the destination tunnel number. If you do not specifythe destination tunnel number, the source tunnel number is used.

    MPLS-TP IP-less supportGenerally,MPLS-TP functionality can be deployedwith or without an IP address. However, themainmotivationfor the IP-less model is this: an LSR can be inserted into an MPLS-TP network without changing theconfigurations on adjacent LSRs. In the past Cisco IOS-XR MPLS-TP release, if an interface does not havea valid IP address, BFD packets cannot be transmitted over that link, and hence MPLS-TP LSP cannot bebrought up on that link. In this release, the IP-less TP link operates only in a point-to-point mode.

    This feature, therefore, makes the need for an IP address on a TP link optional. You may deploy LSRs runningCisco IOS-XR inMPLS-TP networks with or without an IP address.With such extra flexibility, LSRs runningCisco IOS-XR can be easily deployed not only with LSRs running IOS, but with LSRs from other vendorstoo.
